Mrs. Laura Carr

3rd Grade



 Hello! My name is Laura Carr and I am so happy to have your child this year! I have been married to my husband Tommy for 19 years.  We are blessed with two children, Will (9th grade) and Blaire (7th grade).  We are proud to call Hernando our hometown.  I look forward to a great year at Hernando Hills!

About Me:


I graduated with my bachelors degree in Elementary Education from William Carey College in 2002.

I obtained my National Board Certification and my Master's degree in Educational Leadership from Mississippi College.


I began my teaching career in Lumberton, MS teaching 2nd grade.  I moved to north MS and began teaching at Greenbrook Elementary in Southaven, MS.  I transferred to Hernando Hills when it opened and taught 3rd and 2nd grade.  After teaching 10 years, I decided to take time off with my two small children, but returned to HHES in 2016 as the PE teacher.  After teaching PE for several years, I made a move back to the classroom in 2020. 

I am educator through and through.  I love children and I love to see them grow and learn. I work extremely hard to create a classroom community that is inviting, warm, and engaging. I focus on seeing the best in one another as we strive for big goals.
